A 60-plus-year masterwork of ruggedness, clarity, and light transmission, the Bushnell Elite E2 7x26 binocular represents the pinnacle of optical performance for today's outdoor enthusiast. The binocular is equipped with fully multicoated optics, creating unmatched edge-to-edge clarity, contrast, and true color imagery. The binocular also offers clarity in the foulest conditions thanks to the patented RainGuard HD coating, , a patented, permanent, water-repellant coating that causes moisture from rain, snow, sleet, and condensation to bead up and scatter less light. This prevents fogging and boost brightness, producing the type of view that other optics can only dream about. Other features include twist-up eyecups, a 7-foot close focus distance, a textured surface, a comfort neck strap, and a waterproof case.

Seriously good compact binos at a good price. I carry binos around my neck from morning to night on the 30 to 40 days that I hunt through rugged country in the northern Rocky Mountains. I like the clarity, brightness, and long eye relief (full view when wearing glasses) of the Bushnell 7X26. I can't bear full size, 2-pound+ optics hanging around my neck all day. Also, the compact size means they stay out of the way while hunting with a longbow. I also carry them while backpacking/hiking in the mountains 30 to 40 days each summer. Yes, you give up a bit of brightness that full size binos provide at dawn and dusk--but well worth the tradeoff in my book. Do your homework: for the most critical bino reviews, talk with birder friends and visit birder web sites. This is the only compact, well-priced bino that birding sites recommended. For stories about how I use these, see my EcoRover blogspot.

I've had this bino for two years now, so it's gotten plenty of use. First, let me say that it's ergonomically excellent. Fits the hand as well as many much more expensive binoculars. Very compact and lightweight, so they don't become a pain in the neck when you're out on the trail. Optically, they are the equal of models costing twice as much. The glass is exceptionally clear. For daytime use, these have become my favorites.

Enthusiastically recommended.

Bushnell Elite E2 7 x 26 binoculars are the modern rendition of Bushnell's "Custom Compact" 7 x 26 binoculars, which were originally designed for NASA's Gemini Space Flights, during the 1960's. The original versions were built in Japan, and are of the highest quality, glass lenses and overall construction.

I bought My Custom Compacts way back during the beginning of the Regan Presidency, and they have been on literally hundreds of hunts together with Me.
Even during darkness and inclement weather, they have never fogged or failed to do their job, and they were always easy to wear, due to their compact size and light-weight.

These days, I use My Custom Compacts for target observation, when at the range, and also for bird watching.

Recently, I evaluated the latest version of the original 7 x26 Bushnell binoculars, (Elite E2's), and I'd wager they're 100% as effective as My thirty-some year old pair, and perhaps shaped somewhat better, for ease of use under cold weather hunting gear.

The ancient addage; "One gets what one pays for" cannot be emphasized enough, when it comes to purchasing optics for harsh outdoor sporting usage.

You'll never regret owning a pair of these high quality Bushnell Elite binoculars....go for it!

l have owned a lot of high dollar compacts and these offer the best brightness/clarity for the dollar.
When you start getting above this price point the bang for the buck falls way off.
Take the plundge, you wont regret it 10 years from now when they are still functioning as good as when first purchased!

Good, clear galss as expected for the price. The diopter adjustment moves to easy and I was constantly having to re-adjust. The eye pieces hit me wrong and after a while I experienced some eye fatigue. Generally, speaking a nice, light-weight travel pair of binoculars. No regrets.

Great glass, super bright, accurate colors, easy on the eyes. Nice ergonomic design. Surprisingly heavy for their size. Crystal clear with incredible detail. But beware, there is a fatal (at least for me) flaw. This binocular is not fog or water proof.

Pros: Small enough to carry all the time, optically excellent, bright enough for any daylight use. Porro prism design = much less expensive than equivalent size roof prism binocs with the phase coating those need to equal porro prism contrast.

Cons: like any center focus porro prism, not completely waterproof and less compact than roofs. The inverse design, with the objective lenses inside the eyepieces, helps, though. Eye relief is OK.

My opinion: perfectly happy with these as all day, every day binoculars, assuming I won't be falling out of any canoes. Eye relief is very good.

Like any small binocs, some practice is needed before you can use them effectively.

If your activities require absolute water integrity or extra brightness for dawn and dusk, perhaps they're not for you.

Bought these for a trip to Asia, for some casual birding in city parks. They worked great, offering sharp views with excellent contrast and comfortable eye relief. At 7x and with wide field they're good for sports, too.

A little larger than roof prism compacts but you'd have to spend much more to get roofs of similar quality. Cheap roof prism binos (any roof that doesn't have "phase coating," and even some that claim they do) can't keep up optically with a good porro prism design. The extra weight compared to, say, 8x20 roofs is offset by a more secure grip offered by the larger body, and steadier views when in actual use. Also the 26mm objectives are noticeably brighter and allow for easier eye positioning than all the small roof binos I've tried. These are more similar in performance to good 8x32s than 8x20s.

If you want to carry around a lightweight pair of binos constantly, consider lighter roof prism binos. If your compacts will stay mostly in the car or hotel room and only get carried around when you plan to actually use them, these are wonderful performers and great value.
